This is an old title but the combat still makes it a great action rpg title. You are able to use a sword and shield (you start with just a sword you need to pick up a shield and the shield can be taken off you), duel swords (note* duel as in 2 not twin as in 2 of the same) and long swords or two handed swords. Enemies range from humans to spirits so you get to kill all sorts of things, it can be challenging at times but that adds to the fun and if a pirate or guard gets on your case chop off his head lol. Yes there is some graphic death sequances in this title thats why its rated 18+. This is the second copy of Conan I've owned my first one was distroyed thanks to a very young child who got into my collection. So thanks to Mighty Ape I was able to get a new copy for a fraction of the price it would have cost me to get it through any other gaming store. Check the specials ppl Mighty Ape have some great deals for titles that would cost in the hundreds, you might be able to get up to and some times over 70% discount like I did with Conan. Thanks again Mighty Ape.
